Paneer Tikka Masala

A cheese-based Indian dish.



  1. Take a glass container, and mix the cubed paneers with half a tea spoon of red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, fenugreek powder, and 50g yogurt.
  2. Let the mix marinade for at least an hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F), and place the marinated paneer cubes, with onion, capsicum, and tomato on the skewers. Let them grill in the oven using skewer support, by continuously flipping them every 5 minutes until the outer crust looks crispy enough.
  4. Start heating some oil in a pan to add some cardamom and cumin seeds. Let it heat until the flavor is transfused for about a minute or two.
  5. Now add chopped onions and tomatoes to the sautee. Add some shaved ginger and garlic paste and let it sauté until some raw flavor disappears.
  6. Add the tomato purée, dry fenugreek leaves, and let it cook for about 15 minutes.
  7. As the spice and tomato purée looks cooked, add some water to the mixture and let it cook more.
  8. Now add the grilled paneer, some chopped vegetables of choice, corn and stir the mixture well.
  9. One the added water seems to be evaporated, and the mixture looks a little thicker, turn off the heat and garnish with lemon juice, fresh coriander. (It can be served with bread of any preference.)
